Welcome to the
Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center

A Simulation Lab of 2,000 square metres, one of the largest and most technologically advanced in Europe, integrated with the Humanitas Campus.

MARIO LUZZATTO SIMULATION CENTER

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center is a unique facility in Italy. Its excellence has made it the gold standard in the education and scientific advancement of healthcare professionals.  

You learn by making mistakes: you learn more through simiulation

Simulation in education is an extremely effective way to acquire professional skills as it integrates theory with practice.

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center is a unique facility in Italy. Its excellence has made it the gold standard in the education and scientific advancement of healthcare professionals.  

In the field of healthcare, simulation is an educational tool that uses high-fidelity simulators; thanks to the most advanced software, these simulators can reproduce not only many clinical treatments but also, more in general, the dynamics of the interaction between healthcare professionals and/ or between healthcare professionals and patients.  It is thus possible to practice and develop not only technical skills but also non-technical skills, in a faithfully reproduced clinical environment that allow participants to fully immerse themselves.  Education and training through simulation is both for future professionals and for the continuing education all healthcare workers. 

 

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center is an innovative international facility; it enriches Humanitas University’s degree programmes by offering students professional training as well as all healthcare professionals with different skill sets and specialisations.  

 

The Simulation Center also provides a space to interested firms that faithfully reproduces settings in a modern healthcare facility or hospital, from hospital rooms to operating theatres, from emergency services to endoscopy and angiography suites.

This Smart Medicine space uses technology to support learning, making it possible to practice treatments and techniques that will be used in real clinical settings.

It is possible to work as a team here and to use innovative technologies to safely deal with complex clinical situations, learning from any mistakes one might make.

The simulation rooms

Explore the Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center in this video providing a 360° view of the simulation rooms: 

The Center has 3 high-fidelity simulation rooms, 2 medium-low-fidelity simulation rooms, 4 multifunctional rooms, 3 control booths, 1 physiotherapy lab and a wet lab, completely set up as a modern operating theatre and fitted with all the technology and equipment necessary to conduct teaching activities in medicine and surgery and to study anatomy.   

There are also 3 conference rooms for plenary sessions, with seating capacity for 25-45 persons. The Auditorium, instead, has a seating capacity for 150-240 persons. There are also a number of smaller conference rooms for debriefing and meetings.

All the simulation rooms, the wet lab, the conference rooms and the Auditorium are equipped with state-of-the-art audio-video systems and are linked to each other, thereby guaranteeing maximum interactivity between the various spaces during the course of the event.

Vision

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center was born thanks to Humanitas University’s desire to implement a path towards achieving its institutional goals: training and scientific advancement in the field of medicine. The Center came to light also thanks to the generous contribution of the Luzzatto family, which has always been committed to supporting these same goals.

The Center stems from a need that is more and more strongly felt both by experienced physicians and by those at the beginning of their learning pathway, a need to complete and perfect one’s professional training.

The Center is for all medical disciplines, for the single professional as well as for scientific associations, researchers and the healthcare industry, be they Italian or international. The Center provides ideal facilities and all the support equipment necessary to improve and perfect surgical techniques and technologies, reproducing the interpersonal doctor-patient and interprofessional dynamics as well through practical experimentation and research.

The foundation of the Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center allows Humanitas University to offer all healthcare professionals and/or the healthcare industry, both Italian and foreign, an innovative Smart Medicine facility where courses and scientific learning pathways can be developed and conducted in all areas of medicine and related fields and disciplines.

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center is a landmark of excellence on the Italian medical-scientific landscape.  

The Luzzatto family’s commitment to the Simulation Center

Humanitas University’s Simulation Center is dedicated to Mario Luzzatto, internationally well-known businessman, artist and philanthropist, who died in 2012.

His commitment to health research brought Humanitas to his attention, making a generous donation to the latter.

Humanitas University has dedicated to Luzzatto the philanthropist this innovative centre, whose value to medical education is enormous.
